Personal counseling is provided to students needing individualized support in order to improve and maintain mental health. The general goal of the personal counseling provided at Student Health Services is to support students in being successful in school.  Should a student need additional resources, Student Health Services staff will appropriately refer students to outside services such as a private practitioner, medical professional (e.g. psychiatrist, nutritionist), community support group, or facility that specializes in the student's problem.
Personal counseling services provided by Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) Interns under the clinical supervision of Christine Vincent, MFT.

 

Confidentiality

While there are limits to confidentiality, the fact that you are seeing a counselor does not appear on any academic records. Your right to confidentiality is protected by law.

As helping professionals, we are legally and ethically bound to report cases of

  • child abuse,
  • elder abuse,
  • suicide,
  • homicide, and if
  • individuals are gravely disabled and unable to care for themselves.

 

In such cases, the counselor is legally required to make outside reports (where appropriate) of information obtained during counseling sessions. The counselor will inform the student that confidentiality will be broken and the reason(s) for doing so.

If you feel you are in need of personal counseling services please contact Student Health Services at 831-646-4017 or you can fill out an application form and bring it to Student Health Services in person, or email it to lcontapay@mpc.edu. You will be contacted within 2 days. Please call if you don't hear from a Student Health Services employee.
